Mayor Nicol announced that any member of the public wishing to audio or video record a Council Meeting must give notice to the Borough Clerk prior to the meeting being recorded.

Mayor Nicol convened the work session in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and recognized the Administrator, who had advised Council that he had nothing to report, but he noted that the agenda referenced a Proclamation. The Proclamation was to be read at a later date and was a surprised so that, while it would ultimately be included in the minutes, it would not be read at this time.

Whereas, the Borough of Brielle has been formed in compliance with the applicable statues, and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper for a municipal corporation to recognize the achievements of its residents, and
Whereas, the Boy Scouts of America make a vital contribution to American Society by instilling in our youth a respect for the traditional American values that have served as the granite foundation for our way of life, and
Whereas, the Borough of Brielle is honored to number among its residents a gentleman who has dedicated himself to instilling in young men the values of Scouting, and
Whereas, Jack Tobin has been the Scoutmaster of Troop 63 since 2004, in addition to his service as Cub Master of Cub Scout Pack 63 from 2002 to 2006, and he has been instrumental in making B.S.A. Troop 63 the finest Troop in Monmouth County, and
Whereas, his service to scouting and to his community is indeed worthy of commemoration
Now Therefore Be Proclaimed, that August 26th, 2016 be designated as Jack Tobin Day in the Borough of Brielle
Be It Further Proclaimed, that all residents of Brielle join the Friends & Families of B.S.A. Troop 63 in celebrating this event.

Whereas, September of each year is recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month throughout the nation; and
Whereas, cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in U.S. children under 15 years of age killing more children than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and muscular

Page 66

dystrophy combined; and
Whereas, every school day, 46 children or two classrooms of students will be diagnosed with cancer - 7 of them will die; and
Whereas, in the last 25 years, only 2 drugs have been specifically developed for children's cancer and two-thirds of childhood cancer patients will develop long-lasting chronic conditions resulting from treatment; and
Whereas, the childhood cancer rates have been rising for the past few decades and approximately 15,000 children in the U.S. under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016; and
Whereas, The Ashley Lauren Foundation has operated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization since July, 2005 and The mission of The Ashley Lauren Foundation is to bring hope and help to children in New Jersey who have been diagnosed with cancer through financial, material and emotional assistance, parties, birthdays, outings, "Making Dreams Come True," and anything else that is needed to make their lives easier, free-of-charge; and
Whereas, The Ashley Lauren Foundation has developed partnerships with health care centers throughout the State of New Jersey and others in the fight against pediatric cancer in all forms; and
Whereas, the Borough of Brielle in the State of New Jersey joins in recognizing September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to increase awareness and understanding of children with cancer.

Now, Therefore, be it resolved, that I, Thomas B. Nicol, Mayor of the Borough of Brielle in the State of New Jersey, do hereby proclaim September as CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH and urge all Brielle citizens to "Go Gold" for September.
